A View From Federal Hill, Revisited

David Harvey's essay "A View From Federal Hill," which originally appeared in The Baltimore Book and was later reprinted in Spaces of Capital, is one of the most influential texts to address the corporate redevelopment of Baltimore's Inner Harbor, and a model for reading the political economy of a city's skyline, especially where, as in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, a tourist-focused policy of capital accumulation through public financing was the order of the day.

17 years after it's initial publication, we've asked David Harvey to revisit his seminal text in the context of Baltimore's continuing process of gentrification, the economic crisis, and the efforts launching this spring to secure economic justice and work with dignity in the Inner Harbor.

This event will, *weather permitting*, take place on Federal Hill itself.
We'll move it indoors to 2640 if we have to.
